set to an adventure, he/ she meets an old bearded mentor, the hero meets the antagonist,then the hero fails in a fight, most of the time they get supernatural help, then the hero is ready and defeats the antagonist and gets a reward and is back in their ordinary world. some great examples are Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Lord of the rings The hero’s journey relates to my life in multiple ways but the story that it relates to the most is when I went from elementary school to middle school.
journey was successful. My life’s journey as a student is like Joseph Campbell’s hero’s journey because I had an adventure out of my ordinary world, I have met middle school student mentors, and I have earned a new experience and started a new life. After many times that Joseph Campbell’s life was a very well earned and being considered a hero, even though I am not a hero, I think that everyone should have a journey in life, but my life’s journey of being a student at a new school means that I will have
being a mother, wife, maid, chauffeur, cook and teacher of sorts to my family. I have never done anything for myself and I hadn’t wanted to, until now. My three sons are all in high school and my only daughter is a 7th grader. They undoubtedly still need me but they are obviously more self-sufficient at their ages. Although I love being a mother and have no regrets about my choices, I decided I wanted to accomplish something in my life that gave me a different kind of fulfillment and purpose. I had
One of the most pivotal times of my Christian life was the summer when I was eleven years old. Being that young student going into middle-school, I thought I had it all figured out. Due to my fascination with aviation and astronomy, I had planned to be not only an astronaut, but the first man on Mars. My intended path to that goal included going to an excellent university and become an engineer, then joining the Air Force as a test pilot, eventually leading me to become an astronaut. Quite frankly
projects during my school years. This passionate interest in medicine, however, is not the product of an innate desire or motive; it has stemmed from reasons related to where I grew up and who I grew up with. A doctor must be willing to experience an adventure everyday with hurdles he must be able to overcome.
Looking back to my younger adolescent days, I see what a free-spirited, adventurer I was. As a straight “A” student and tri-sport athlete, I had a very busy schedule, but I took every opportunity for adventure I could. Being from small town Bellville, Ohio, there was not much for a group of young teenagers to do. We liked to push the envelope, trying to find something to experience the thrill of an adrenaline rush. But, as I quickly learned, not every adventure is harmless and goes well, without
relationships I have with my high school friends will not all last. As the end of my senior year approaches, the unfortunate reality sets in that not all the friendships I have established will endure. Thankfully I will always hold onto the memories and impacts each relationship had on me. Moving on is healthy and losing touch with friends is okay.
Ever heard the saying, “Mothers know best?” Well I really wished I listened to my mom going on my middle school trip, instead I found myself miles away from home strapped on a gurney. Wondering how the best day of my life quickly became the worst day, and all I could think was, my mom is going to kill me. Entering 7th grade, the moment I’ve waited for so long is finally here. It was the school’s annual October trip to the Universal Studios Park in Orlando.This wasn’t any ordinary trip, this
After almost dying a second time Jace said to Clary, “It’s a bit of the very last verse from Paradiso – Dante’s Paradise. ‘My will and my desire were turned by love, the love that moves the sun and the other stars.’ Dante was trying to explain faith, I think, as an overpowering love, and maybe it’s blasphemous, but that’s how I think of the way that I love you. You came into my life and suddenly I had one truth to hold on to- that I loved you, and you loved me,” (Clare 407-408). After almost losing
known since my high school years that I wanted to become a researcher in the field of neuroscience. My motivations include but are not limited to, an appreciation of the human mind and potential as well as an eagerness to learn how the brain and human behavior influence each other. I have learned over the years that research is never easy but it is always worthwhile. I find that my own exploration as a researcher follows a story of its own and I intend to write the next chapter of my life in graduate
